Innovation in the “Age of Accelerations”

George Mason University Science and Technology Campus, Manassas, Virginia

Held by George Mason University, the Global Challenges Forum Foundation and the PfP Consortium Emerging Security Challenges Working Group in partnership with NATO Allied Command for Transformation, the United States Atlantic Council, and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research.

This event builds on a series of previous workshops and strategic dialogues in the United States, Europe and the Middle East that identified key challenges and pointed toward collectively owned opportunities. They began with the establishment of the “Global Resilience Readiness Initiative” at the launch of Global Knowledge Networking (GKN) in Geneva, Switzerland in September 2015. This is the 2nd GKN Symposium and is dedicated to the exploration of enhancing global resilience in the “Age of Accelerations.” The George Mason University sessions will focus on ways that innovation, especially in cyberspace, can help future leaders, their organizations, and institutions address global security challenges in a complex world, by making knowledge actionable.

Global Resilience Institute Founding Director Dr. Stephen Flynn will deliver the keynote.
